Frosty Father Christmas – with Primitive Goodies.


This familiar fellow is quite the charmer. Meet Father Christmas. He is my original design & is guaranteed one of a kind art! He measures 17″ tall from the tip of his wreath to this base. Father Christmas has been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & painted & sanded many times, giving him a lovely, aged patina. He has been sealed with matte sealant so that he may be beautifully preserved. His base is rag-stuffed & bean-filled so that he stands steadily. His neck is supported with wire armature.

Father Christmas’s face has been painted with a variety of media. His nose and bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand.


His fingers have been needle-sculpted. Father Christmas sports brown painted gloves. He also wears a festive wreath around his head, made from dried sweet annie & rusty wire. The sweet annie has been sealed to prevent it from shedding. I’ve also treated both sides of the sweet annie wreath with spray adhesive & vintage style glass glitter. This gives the wreath a frosty appearance & is absolutely lovely in dim light. Father Christmas’s wardrobe consists of a gown made of osnaburg, featuring vintage mother of pearl buttons & a long, brown, velveteen coat trimmed with faux fur. All exposed hems feature hand-stitching. And all trim has been hand-applied.

Father Christmas carries a bag full of goodies! His burlap bag ties with a sheer chocolate ribbon. Its grosgrain strap is attached to the bag with safety pins & can be removed should you wish to display him without his bag or display it in a different manner. Each item has been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill, hand-painted, sanded, aged & sanded again. The stick horse also features a needle felted wool mane & painted wooden dowel. A touch of glue was used to secure the dowel inside the horse’s head. The stick horse measures 6.5″ tall. Teddy & tree are 5″ long.

Father Christmas’s hair, beard & mustache are white 100% mohair. I’ve applied a touch of glue for added security & then needle felted it in place.
